We Are An Eco School





Wylye Valley Primary School has an Eco Group called The Wylye World Warriors.  It is made up of pupils from Years 5 and 6 and Mrs Baker.  We would very much like the community represented at these meetings, so if you have an interest in sustainability please contact the school.  We meet up at least once a term to discuss ways to make the school more eco-friendly.  The group hold assemblies to make the pupils and staff more aware of our environment by turning off lights, turning down the heating, using less water, reusing and recycling paper and cardboard and picking up litter.  At break times the eco-committee carry out regular litter picks. We put compost caddies in all the classrooms and dining room for fruit and vegetable waste.  These are emptied twice a week into a large compost bin which is then used by the gardening club.  The eco-committee empty these bins twice a week in their own time.

Two members of our Eco Group helped Tom and Helen plant trees as part of the Wylye Valley Farmers planting project.

We won the Environmental Youth Award for Wiltshire and are waiting to see if we are worthy of winning the whole award for the South West of England. The judges visited the school to see the work which we are doing.

The chairperson of Wylye World Warriors attended a Governors meeting and shared with them ways in which they are trying to make the school more eco-friendly.
